      Hello Peter, thank you very much for the very intensive and informative photography course. I think I learnt (and above all retained!) more during this time than in the various VHS courses I attended before. And thanks to your Lightroom instruction, the pictures are now getting the finishing touches, not forgetting your archiving system, where I can now find things again.
      Thanks for everything, and see you next time

    2. Stephan Backes

      Hi Peter!
      The course was great and tailored exactly to my needs. I learnt a lot and had a lot of fun!
      It was a successful overall package, which now gives me more opportunities to have even more fun with photography!
      Thank you!
      I will definitely recommend you to others!!!


    3. Dear Mr Roskothen,

      Thank you very much for the great, instructive and informative training at our company.
      The training gives our product shots a whole new "glamour". I was also able to expand my knowledge in the area of portrait photography. Especially with group shots of the management and general employee photos. Thanks to the extensive consultation in advance, this training was perfectly tailored to our needs.

      Many thanks for that.
      We will certainly stay in touch.

      Yours sincerely

      Dear (amateur) photographers,
      the "journey is the reward", rarely does this saying fit as well as in photography. I've already read a lot about developing my photography "skills" or watched web videos, but this photography course with Peter as a gift from my wife was a really great idea. Good preparation, a personalised compilation of content followed by a really exciting, informative and enjoyable course was a great experience. I finally understood the relationship between aperture and exposure so well that I can use it effectively. With this crucial tip, I can now take really good pictures with the camera's manual setting. You can tell that Peter is really enthusiastic about Lightroom and he knows how to convey and infect this enthusiasm. Of course, I won't be able to copy everything 1:1, but I now shoot all the pictures as raw again and the creative process goes into the next round when I press the shutter release.
      The photo course was great, summer can come. The desire to try new things has been rekindled.
      Many thanks and best regards, Stefan

      Dear Mr Roskothen!

      Here in the house you are "Peter", then everyone knows! I really must complain! Michael used to take a lot of photos, and I was also to be seen from time to time. Since his course with you, he has photographed EVERYTHING. We were at Lake Garda for a few days and it was really BAD. He was constantly stuck to walls, walls, ruins or waiting for the next ray of sunshine or for the tourists to finally leave the path so that he could capture the symmetry of the stones in the picture. However, there is one advantage to this photomania: I only briefly point out which shop I'm going to while he stands somewhere and takes pictures. This saves me having to deal with the male grumbling while I'm shopping and he can take the picture in peace. "Peter said ... (there are lots of examples here)" has also become a common saying in our house! I'm afraid he'll be coming back to your course next year at the latest to "talk shop". No, quite honestly: it must have been simply amazing, nice and great with you. The only question is how we will survive the summer holiday!!!!!!! Once again, my sincere respect for your work!

      Kind regards

      Maike L.

      Hello Peter,

      Better late than never, I'd like to get rid of my comment about your photo training. I was a bit sceptical at first when I found you on the www. Such a training face to face with a professional... Am I completely embarrassing myself? Or won't it all be too much input???? What's the guy like, maybe totally arrogant????
      I was actually expecting something like a VHS course. On the other hand, such a course would certainly have its advantages. I could ask anything at any time, all my attention was focussed on one student.
      So I took heart and called you. By now all my doubts were gone. Your relaxed and friendly manner dispelled any doubts I had. (Even those of my not quite quick grasp of camera technology and photographic knowledge:-)
      But our appointment was going to be a while longer, it was just lousy and bitterly cold, so I postponed it again and again. You seemed to fully understand and I think that should be mentioned here :-)
      I was a little nervous on the day of the photo training, but after a short time the excitement had subsided. You really picked me up from where I was with a calm and fun approach. I felt really well looked after and had the feeling that I could ask anything without feeling stupid.
      It was a very educational and exciting experience for me and was almost topped when I found out about the excursion to Arcen. Of course I wanted to take part and it was a really great experience.
      Getting to know nice people, taking photos together and always having an expert at our side who doesn't leave us out in the rain with tips and tricks, but inspires us to try out new things, whether with or without flash, short or long exposure times - everything can be a topic.
      For me, this photo training course was an absolute enrichment and, especially with the excursions afterwards, the subject of photography remains very, very lively and is constantly being deepened.
      I hope you offer many more of these.....

      Best wishes


    7. Hello Mr Roskothen,

      I really liked your website with tips and tricks about photography.
      As a result, but especially through recommendation, I took part in your private macro workshop.

      Thank you once again for the intensive training, the book and, above all, the time you took for it.

      I've got to know my camera much better, got lots of good tips from you and am very excited about the first photos in manual focus...

      And if anyone wants to have a look at my photos, here is a link to the fc:

      I can only recommend Mr Roskothen with his warm and enthusiastic manner!

      The next course is already being planned...:-)

      Greetings to Grefrath from Alpen,

      Tina B.

      Hello Peter,

      In many ways the Fuji seemed much more cumbersome than the Nikon I used before.

      After the one-to-one coaching with you, I am totally thrilled about how easy it can be when the settings are right.
      Only now have I learnt to appreciate the advantages of my camera.
      My Fujianese existence has received a significant motivation boost.

      Many topics were addressed and my questions were answered in detail. What's more, they were very friendly and competent.

      Learning on a 1:1 basis helped me more than in a course with several participants.

      The time flew by, it was great fun and I gained a lot of valuable knowledge.

      At first, the long journey seemed very time-consuming, but the extremely positive experience was more than worth the effort.

      I will certainly make my way to the Lower Rhine again.

      Thank you so much for this wonderful morning.

      Best regards,

      Beate M.

    9. Dear photo enthusiasts,

      If you are enthusiastic about learning photography and want to invest in yourself at a high level, I highly recommend a photography course or a photo excursion with Peter Roskothen! I recently experienced and enjoyed such an excursion/course. Thanks to his great empathy, Mr Roskothen succeeded in recognising all my priority needs and responding to them competently. In a wonderfully calm and really very understandable way, many gaps in my knowledge were filled and I was given brilliant practical tips and settings for the camera (FUJI X-T2). Many a mystery has been solved... ;-) Apart from the purely photographic-technical content of the course, I would also like to mention the wonderful atmosphere in which Mr Roskothen embedded the event. To be so pleasantly enriched with knowledge, skills and a good atmosphere in just a few hours is really something special.
